Citation:

"For seminal contributions to the development and application of quantum metrological methods, in particular of squeezed light sources and optical springs, enabling sensitive measurements beyond the standard quantum limit."

Background:

Roman Schnabel graduated in Physics in 1994 at Hannover University, Germany, where he also received his Ph.D in the fields of plasma physics and laser spectroscopy in 1999. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics until 2000, when he received a Feodor-Lynen fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation to participate in a research project on quantum teleportation at the Australian National University. In 2002 he went back to Germany to become a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics. From 2003 to 2008 he was a Juniorprofessor and has been since then Professor at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Leibniz Universität Hannover. He is a Fellow of the German Physical Society. His research fields of interest are nonclassical states, quantum information and gravitational wave detection.
